Teachers of Promise 2016
The Maryland Teachers of Promise Institute aims to encourage the state’s best and brightest college students to teach in Maryland and to provide a transition from student to first year teacher. The program capitalizes on the expertise of Teachers of the Year and other award winning educators by matching them with promising pre-service teachers from Maryland colleges and universities. These are students who demonstrate high academic achievement and teaching skills. Mentors and proteges work together online during the spring and summer transition period until new teachers are placed in a school.
